WIAW

Day late…Dollar short. Story of my life! But since It’s What I ate Wednesday I thought I’d show you what I REALLY did eat on Wednesday!

Breakfast:

1/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 smashed banana, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbs slivered almonds, cinnamon and agave

Lunch:

Vegan Mac and Cheese Casserole and Vegetable Soup

Dinner:

Morning Star “Chicken” Patty w/ ketchup on sandwich thin – Apple sliced with peanut flour sauce

Dessert:

NOTHING exciting! I came home SO hungry last night that I almost ate the lunch I had for dinner too. That would’ve been pretty to share.

I’m also still mildly addicted to pinterest. Yesterday I made another monogram for our bedroom.

I drew a block-letter k on a 11×17 piece of white cardstock. Then I glued the buttons on one-by-one and overlapped some to give it a 3-d effect.

Love it 🙂

Outfit:

Awkward picture.

Yellow Cardigan: H&M

Brown Tank: Nordstrom

Jeans: True Religion

Headband: Forever 21

Necklace: Nordstrom

I skipped my workout yesterday but need to get on it today – I have a LONG weekend of fun ahead of me 🙂

Questions: Do you put ketchup on your “chicken” patties? I would never eat it with grilled chicken but it seems right to me when it’s breaded.

Entertainment

Weekends seriously aren’t long enough. Whoever made the rule we should work 5 days and only be off 2, clearly had no job.

Unfortunately Adam had to work all weekend so it was up to me to entertain myself for part of the day. I started off with a trip to Trader Joe’s… I was honestly shocked at how much I got for $67!!

I thought the cashier forgot to ring up some items but I’m just THAT good of a shopper 😉

But then I went to Target and bought 9 things for about 80 dollars so that was a FAIL. Oh well, you can’t win them all.

I headed to Michaels after Target to buy some things for a project I saw on Pinterest .

Patterned Scrapbook paper, Sticker letters and a 8 collage frame equals:

Our new menu dry erase board! It’s so cute and I love it! I have lots of paper and letters leftover so I’m thinking of making something else. Ideas?

After the pinterest project I headed to LA Sunset to be airbrushed. I won a free airbrushing session ($55) last weekend and I never turn down a tan!

Although I may be a little too tan? :/

Crafting, grocery shopping and tanning sure do work up an appetite so I decided to make some pizza. I got the idea from Cooking Light – I absolutely love their recipes!

Started off with a whole wheat thin crust pre-cooked dough (I’ve been having a rough time with raw dough lately 😦 )

Spread with organic tomato and basil marinara and added pepperoni (adams) to half of the pie

I then sauteed up the following veggies w/ garlic/evoo and added them to the pizza: corn, asparagus, red pepper and onions

Sprinkle some crushed red peppers and add some fresh mozz

Bake for 8 minutes

MMM MMM good. Dear Cooking Light – Please make a fall version ASAP.

After the pizza deliciousness we headed to Yogurtland. What would a weekend be without a little dessert??

Yes, this was the line to get into a fr0-yo place!! Did I mention it was 50 degrees outside? People (we) are crazy.

We made the wait worth it and loaded up.

Our eyes may have been bigger than our stomachs?

so what’s in the cup bigger than my head? Oatmeal Cookie fro-yo, strawberry cheesecake fro-yo, cookies and cream fro-yo and red velvet cupcake batter fro-yo with way too many toppings to name 🙂

If you have a yogurtland near you GET the Oatmeal Cookie. Adam and I agreed this was the best fro-yo we’ve had…and we’ve had A LOT of fro-yo.

Now it’s time for bed – with the windows open! Weeeee.

QUESTIONS: Who else is addicted to pinterest?
